Subject: Ike Joins, Church Comes, Troops Watch and Ship Sinks!
We first see Ike take his first steps to becoming the President of the United states by becoming a replublican candidate for election. Nothing really earth shattering here, unless you can't get enough of that impossibly jingoey 'We Like Ike" slogan.
Nice footage of a snowstorm that happened at California. Great footage of a rescue of a snowtrapped train.
Winston Churchill comes to Washington and NYC and well, since this is NYC, they throw a parade for him. Pretty nice one too.
More foolish troops watch a nuclear bomb test in Nevada. They seem to not mind the radioactive dust blowing on to them..
Rather silly segment about a man who can carve figures out of vegetavles. Might as well throw them into a soup like the woman did at the end.
We then show a pretty blah demonstration of a slo mo camera that is said to be able catch missles in flight. That is not shown, instead, we see a slow mo plane.
Hawaii is then profiled, as it was on the verge of becoming a US state. Mmmmkay.
We end it off with a protrait of a ship captain who thought he could save his ship, finally he wa convinced to get off of it. Everyone is moved to this, NYC has (yes) a parade for him. and his hometown also has one too.
Pretty standard stuff this time!

Subject: Wrong description
The description is for another film.

This one is another version of:

"News Magazine of the Screen, The (Vol. 2, Issue 6) (1952/02)" found elsewhere on this site as (http://archive.org/details/NewsMaga_3)

This version has a Univ of North Carolina bumper at front. The one I've referenced here has a 1st Wisconsin National Bank bumper.

The topics for this film are: Ike to Run for President, CA train stuck in snow, Atom Test in Nevada, Hawaii.
